Brendan Cooper (Fairmont State) has been named Mountain East Conference Player of the Week after leading the Falcons to a 2-0 start to the 2013-14 season.

Cooper, a senior from Parma, Ohio, averaged 15.5 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists as the Falcons knocked off Bowie State and Virginia State at the Joe Retton Classic.

Cooper was one assist shy of a triple-double in the win over the Bulldogs in the opener, and then filled the box score with 14 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a win over Virginia State.

The Falcons are now 2-0 on the young season and will travel down to Winston-Salem State in North Carolina on Saturday, November 16 for a tough matchup with the Rams.
